Grasping at the Wind

Overly the last year, I have read Ecclesiastes and have slowly started to gather some thoughts, but they seem just as applicable today. Interpreting, understanding, and enjoying the OT is something I wish I could say came easily, but if I'm being honest, I typically struggle with this way more than I would like. As...

Community or Panzi Scheme?

Have you ever wished that God gave you a specific to-do list on how to live according to His will, and how to get the most out of it?  How do we make the biggest return on our investment? In a way, 1 Thessalonians 5:11-23 does just that.  It outlines specific ways that we should... Continue Reading →

Easter Reflection – why?

Happy Easter! Jesus is risen!  Okay, I missed the boat on getting this posted in time for Easter, like I had planned, but Jesus is still risen, right? Though I am sure, you saw a million articles about Jesus this Easter, I wanted to reflect back on something I was reminded of this year: the... Continue Reading →

Share Boldly? I don’t.

The 12 Obeyed

Recently,  I was reading through Mark 3 and came to the part entitled in my bible: The Twelve Disciples and wondered why did he choose only 12? The likely answer is that these twelve were those who would fully obey him*. This is not to say that others did not obey, but they were willing... Continue Reading →

Thankfully Boasting

According to God, boasting isn't sinful (2 Thessalonians 2:4).  This is a contradiction of what I typically think is right. I usually assume that pride is bad and subsequently bragging about it is even worse. In this passage, there a two distinct differences with the type of basting that I am used to looking so...
